I was indeed thinking about the LL method from jasmine's tutorial.
It is actually the tutorial I learned from.

Still have the sheet I prepared with the order of (Anti) Sune for the seven CP cases.

I like how there is only one alg that you (propably) will not use anymore lateron. This being the adjecent corner switch.
And also that on eis short and simple
I remember writing down how to do OCLL with two sunes for all 7 cases for other people back in the day.

I use niklas + anti sune for my jperm so I actually use all the algs still, except I now use RU Uperms instead of Allan.

I teached my little brother the 3x3x3 begginers method, learned it in 2 days. Now I'm moving him into Keyhole and petrus before finally show him Fidrich.


On his birthday I'm gifting him a set of speedcubes (he's turning 31 next month ^^ )

I don't think any of that is stopping anytime soon. :p

It's not a language issue. Gaëtan also posts on the French forum sometimes and his posts in French are just as nonsensical as his posts in English.

Warning: long post


Update on Birgit's progress

She can now comfortably do the first two layers, even when some 2nd layer edge pices are in the wrong positions or flipped.
We always practice with white as the first layer but last night she showed me two solved layers starting from green.
I guess this is a proof that she really has got these 2 layers down and that she fully understands what she is doing.

She even mentioned to me that the 3rd layer had "a special line", meaning that it gives a fully oriented U face after fixing the cross. This is the "T with headlights to the left". I had mentioned this case to her once before when we came across it during practice.

Unfortunately she is still a little uncomfortable with the F or f premove for fixing the LL cross so she stopped the solve there. Too bad since it went straight into a single U-perm to finish it off.

For teaching the LL cross I had first tought her the sexy move which she can practice on a solved cube. This is a fun excersize in that it gives a reward (solved cube!) after 6 executions. I have also shown how it affects three "edges" of the cube and how F and f moves move already solved F2L pieces out of the way.

Given the small struggle with the F and f premoves for the yellow cross we made a small excursion to the 2x2x2 yesterday evening.
1st layer was no problem; just pick one piece as "being OK" and arrange the three other corners around it.
Then look for corner permutation: pick two adjacent corners with a same colored sticker and place these above the 1st layer side with the same color.
Switch adjecent corners if needed via LU'R'UL'U'RU2 (pretty straight forward alg, especially when the U2 is done as U' U')
She almost almost got this down last night but I think it will take two more sessions.
Then repetitions of Sune to twist the corners:
1 or 2 upward yellow stickers: AUF so sticker is UFL and Sune
No upward yellow stickers: AUF so sticker is FUL and Sune

She got the Sune alg in one go!
When I showed her I explained it as first three moves of sexy move, keep going with right hand U R... I had not even explained or made up a "code" for the last three moves, I just finished it to show the effect.
Then she tried (one Sune away from finished) and did it right the first (and following times). I could almost swear she was tracking the pair along on the U face which automatically made her do the final U2 R'.

So now what is left is working a little bit on the corner swap, practice AUF for Sune and we can start racing full cubes 2x2x2 vs 3x3x3. Currently she still likes to race F2L on 3x3x3 but she is looking forward to racing to full solves.
Then when she is comfortable with the 2x2x2 I'll go back to the 3x3x3 for the LL cross and then finally U perm to finish it off.

AUF for Sune and Sune: check
U perm: check
LL cross: still needs some work
Corner swap: still needs some work

Almost there!
Too bad the corner swap hasn't clicked yet, otherwise she could do the 2x2X2.

Birgit solving the first two layers of a 3x3x3.


She really is color neutral as teaching is always done with white cross but here she decided to start with red.

Still learning the LL.
She didn't feel like trying the orange cross so we left it at that.
